The first step toward making a change or improvement is to set a goal—a target that defines the outcome and provides direction. While setting goals is relatively easy, actually achieving them can be a challenge. Many of us have come across an old list of goals or resolutions—made with the best of intentions—only to find that none of them were ever accomplished. Perhaps there was a lack of time or motivation, or maybe the goal was just too difficult. So, how can we improve the likelihood that a goal is actually achieved?
One common practice used to help employees define and achieve their goals is the application of SMART Goals. Check out our latest infographic to learn what the SMART goals are.
